What a great place! Food and service were top notch at this funky, fun cafe. Try the shrimp & alligator sausage cheesecake app! Surprisingly delicious. Had the grouper which was also delish. All in our party were impressed.

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

Yes, you can easily park in the street. We went there twice in November and had no trouble finding a parking space along the side walk. Hope this helps.
